  8. White Labs WLP545 Belgian Strong Ale Yeast
    $14.95

    White Labs WLP545 Belgian Strong Ale Yeast

    From the Ardennes region of Belgium, this classic yeast strain produces moderate levels of ester and spicy phenolic character. Typically results in a dry, but balanced finish. This yeast is well suited for Belgian dark strongs, Abbey Ales, and Christmas beers.

    **This strain has been genetically typed in our lab using polymerase chain reaction (PCR). Through this genetic testing, we have determined WLP545 Belgian Strong Ale Yeast to contain the STA1 gene (glucoamylase), a potential indicator of Saccharomyces cerevisiae var. diastaticus. Brewers yeast are natural hybrids, which make it possible for certain strains to display elements of the STA1 gene. These strains have the ability to utilize some dextrins (unfermentable sugars), resulting in higher levels of attenuation than what is considered typical.

    At White Labs, we do everything possible to detect for undesired organisms within our process and cultures. The strains we carry with known Saccharomyces cerevisiae var. diastaticus genetics have been researched and validated to perform without excessive over-attenuating, which is possible through our nearly 25 years of experience paired with internal and external fermentation data.**

  10. White Labs WLP565 Belgian Saison I Ale Yeast
    $14.95

    White Labs WLP565 Belgian Saison I Ale Yeast

    WLP565 Belgian Saison I Ale Yeast

    A classic saison strain sourced from the Wallonia region of Belgium. This strain makes a classic saison by producing flavors and aromas noted as earthy, peppery and spicy. With attenuation averaging around 70 to 75%, some malt flavor will remain present. For best fermentation results, let this strain free-rise to allow for complete attenuation and production of the subtle, traditional aroma characteristics. With high gravity saisons, it’s suggested to dry the beer with an alternate yeast (such as WLP001 California Ale Yeast®) added after 50 to 60% fermentation.

    WLP565 Belgian Saison I Yeast does contain the STA1 gene (glucoamylase), a potential indicator of Saccharomyces cerevisiae var. diastaticus. Brewers yeast are natural hybrids, which make it possible for certain strains to display elements of the STA1 gene. These strains have the ability to utilize some dextrins (unfermentable sugars), resulting in higher levels of attenuation than what is considered typical.

    Recommended as an alternative to Wyeast 3724 Belgian Saison Yeast.

    Attenuation: 65.00-75.00
    Flocculation: Medium
    Alcohol Tolerance: Medium (5 - 10%)
    Optimum Fermentation Temperature: 20-24C
